Arctic Waterbank

The concept for the Waterbank was inspired by other well-known and successful platforms where supply and demand are matched. The Waterbank is a platform that connects the supply and demand for residual water. Residual water includes all water flows that currently flow away but can be used for other purposes, such as rainwater, drinking water, surface water, groundwater, and process water. The platform maps out supply and demand to make connections in the immediate vicinity. By using the platform, parties can donate, get or store residual water for their own use at a later point.

By connecting supply and demand, the Waterbank offers alternatives to using drinking water and pumping groundwater and surface water. This ensures that more drinking water remains available, less groundwater needs to be pumped up, and less wastewater needs to be purified. Bringing the water balance back into balance.

Arctic Waterbank’s mission is to connect the daily supply and demand of usable residual water by promoting the various sources. The WaterBank works with a Quality Mark, which guarantees and measures the sustainability aspect, the water quality, and the water quantity.

Arctic Waterbank goal is to remain involved in this program after the research phase, to deal with our water sustainably and circularly and support others. The Waterbank is currently only available in the Greenland, but the ambition is to go overseas.
